The problem is that I've been completely shell-shocked by by the triple barrage of this morning, I'm a bit worried that I've become desensitised to films that aren't terrible.

This is OK so far, although I'm a bit grumpy and confused about how the main character turned from a shy frump to a happenin' girl about town in the space of 5 minutes. I suppose that most films would take 2 hours to get through what his film did in 5 minutes, but even so, grumble grumble characterisation grumble.

I can't help but notice that the man in the film is one of Carrie Bradshaw's ex-boyfriends in Sex And The City. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.

Tell you what though, something else I've noticed is that in ALL romantic comedies ever made ever, when your main woman gets a make-over, she must immediately walk into something and fall over.

If you want a picture of the future, imagine women, falling over on the cover of Heat magazine, forever.


  1. You have become desensitized, this film is terrible. She puts some makeup on and all of a sudden she becomes sexy and outgoing. That is a terrible thing to say about women.

    I hate MBFGW.

  2. Just thought I would let you know that while you were watching the end of Sex and the City I was having a Q and A session with Jonathan Rosenbaum. And As My Big Fat Greek Wedding end I will be sat in a lecture listening him spew about the beauty of film I joined twitter just to hear your grumblings and will be back tonight to have a look at some more. Keep it up

  3. Eddie, I find your pain intensely entertaining. This disturbs me... so much so that I may use a smiley. Yes. : ) Helen.

  4. when your main woman gets a make-over, she must immediately walk into something and fall over...always like that
